Glass

Many hundreds or thousands of fragments of glass may be liberated when windows and other glass items are broken. Cases where glass fragments are examined are wide-ranging, from breaking car windows to murder.

We attend laboratories to review work already completed by the Crown. We can also consider a defendant’s account of how glass came to be present on items.

 

Common casework enquiries include:

  1. whether another source of glass could have resulted in the scientific findings;
  2. whether the findings reported by the Crown are accurate;
  3. whether the database against which results are compared is appropriate;
  4. what the results reported by the Crown actually mean;
  5. We also have access to certain analytical equipment to allow further work to be undertaken.

Expert services include:

  1. Analysis of glass samples
  2. Comparison of glass samples
  3. Analysis of the direction of damage caused
